Driver going too fast allegedly causes a fatal car accident

Drivers who are speeding are not only breaking the law, but they also may struggle to maneuver their vehicles correctly. Navigating turns and curves are much more difficult when a Colorado driver is going too fast. To protect everyone, the law has posted speed limits and other traffic devices in place. Disobeying speed limits can lead to injuring innocent victims or even result in a fatal car accident.

During a recent early evening, a man was apparently headed east on the highway when he smashed into another vehicle that was turning. According to authorities, the man did not slow down and crashed into another vehicle that was slowing down to navigate a left turn. Due to the impact, the colliding vehicles skidded on the road until they ultimately stopped.

The driver of the car that was struck did not survive the crash. The other driver was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. Both of the men were wearing their seat belts.

The man was cited for the fatal car accident for driving without insurance and for careless driving resulting in death. While nothing can be done to change what has already transpired, the grieving family of the deceased driver may find some solace by successfully pursuing a wrongful death claim against the accused Colorado driver. If the driver is found to be negligent by appropriate evidence in civil court, the family may be awarded a monetary judgment to help alleviate the burden of expenses of medical bills, end-of-life expenses and other financial losses.
